The Renegade Classics brand was established in 1991 and can be found on more than 20 locations across the U.S. Each store is locally owned and operated with a license to use the Renegade Classics name. This means that each store has its own local flavor and selection of merchandise but they are all dedicated to serving the needs of all cruiser and touring motorcycle riders and enthusiasts.
The Chattanooga store is owned and managed by a couple well-known in the local biker community: Julie and Greg Manning. You may have met or seen them at a toy run, charity ride, or bike night over the last seven years. Together they have more than 6 decades of riding experience and a deep love for the freedom of the open road.
Their previous business was the home-based White Oak Embroidery which set up to sew patches many Saturdays in 2018 at White Lighting (formerly Thunder Creek) Harley-Davidson. When they decided they wanted to move their embroidery business out of the garage and into a store, they were quite happy to find the opportunity to join their expertise with a Renegade Classics store. When they made their pitch to open and manage the store, they said, “The Chattanooga motorcycle community really needs a store like Renegade. There’s really not a single store here locally offering a good selection of quality right-priced items for the cruiser market.”
Stop by the store and say hi, and check out the realization of their shared vision for bikers in and around the Tennessee valley.
